Help Syrian Children
7.5 million children are affected by the brutal four-year-old conflict in Syria. Children have been put at risk by unrelenting violence, crumbling infrastructure, ruined schools and hospitals and shortages of essential supplies. In some areas, UNICEF is maintaining the entire water supply.
Refugee camps in the countries bordering Syria are overflowing. There are now 2 million child refugees who have fled Syria. That's more than the combined under-18 populations of Los Angeles and Boston. Many will face another bitter winter in makeshift shelters without adequate clothing or protection from the cold.
To support Syria's children, UNICEF has helped mobilize the largest humanitarian operation in history, supplying food, water, education, warm clothing and blankets, and critical immunizations in Syria and neighboring countries. More than 2.9 million children have been vaccinated against polio.
Nearly 17 million people have received clean, safe water. Some 3.7 million children and adolescents have access to formal and non-formal education opportunities.
UNICEF is fighting to protect Syrian children, but we need your help. Donate to help UNICEF meet their urgent needs.
